Sea Kayak Rolling Clinic

This course will teach you how to roll a kayak — an invaluable safety skill that’s also endlessly fun. We’ll spend most of the time in the water mastering a series of techniques that will lead to an actual attempt at the roll. If you haven’t rolled by the end of the course, you’ll leave knowing what you need to do to get there. This course, which is limited to five students, is taught by Portland Paddle’s most experienced ACA-certified instructors.
